Black with 2

Love love love the bright, funky colour scheme at Black with 2 this month.  Here is the inspiration board:


And this is what I created:

How I used the sketch:  I kept the placement of the large photo in the middle, and kept the balance of elements underneath.  Instead of patterned paper either side of the photo I used the gates. Instead of the smaller photo, I made a journalling block. Instead of the scallop/trim along the top, I added a long title.

How I used the image inspiration: I used hot pink gates to frame my photograph

Other criteria: I used the word DREAM in the title, and I followed the colour scheme.

Core'dinations Ranger Distress - Black Soot cardstock
Rouge de Garance Aile ou Fleur - No 1 patterned paper
Bo Bunny Gypsy Lace patterned paper
Purple Pumpkin Carnival Ticket - Fuchsia
Glitz Design Pink Alpha stickers
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphabet stickers
Green Tara 6cm petals - turquoise
Dusty Attic Ornate Gates Mini lasercut chipboard
Kaisercolour Candy paint
